Cardiff City have been something of a surprise so far this season with the Bluebirds enjoying some excellent form since the start of the campaign. Neil Warnock's side certainly weren't among the favourites for automatic promotion prior to the start of the season, however they currently sit second in the league table with just four points separating them from leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers and while they can't go top even if they win on Friday evening, they can narrow the gap between themselves and Wolves ahead of the latter's Monday evening clash with Birmingham City.

Cardiff stumbled slightly throughout September and October with some disappointing results, however they appear to have found their feet again and they head into this week's clash on the back of an excellent run which has seen them pick up four wins in their last five outings.

Norwich City haven't enjoyed the best of seasons so far with the appointment of Daniel Farke as manager failing to bring with it the expected strong start to the season. Clearly the German will be given more time to make his mark on what is undoubtedly a pretty strong side, however any quality that the Canaries possess has been somewhat lacking in recent weeks. They head to South Wales on the back of a disappointing run which has seen them fail to win any of their last five matches and their last two away games have ended in defeat to Bolton Wanderers and Nottingham Forest. Can they bounce back by collecting the three points on Friday evening? We don't expect so.

Hosts Cardiff City have shown plenty of defensive solidity in recent outings with three consecutive clean sheets heading into this clash. Neil Etheridge has been dependable in goal and we have seen some strong performances from the likes of Joe Bennett and Sean Morrison in defence. With Norwich City struggling to find the net of late, we expect the hosts to enjoy a relatively straightforward win-to-nil with the /free-bets going 23/10 on such an outcome.
